Mercedes Revealed A 20 Foot Monstrous Maybach Convertible
The 2017 Pebble Beach d’Elegance event held in California featured the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6, the exclusive cabriolet model design of the year. The “automotive haute couture” from Mercedes is a blend of futuristic technology and art. They introduced the emission-free driving system and the convertible classic sports car that goes from 0 to 60 mph in only four seconds.
This past decade has been a battle among automotive makers to spit out the most luxurious, efficient, and sleek cars. The love for vintage aesthetics and next generation technology has brought forward the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet. Mercedes is known for the hand-finished luxury vehicles, and this two-seater convertible is a tribute to the line of haute couture cars.
Gorden Wagener, the Chief Design Officer at Daimler AG, explained the strategy behind the exclusive model:
“The Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet takes modern luxury into the realms of the ultimate in luxury and is the perfect embodiment of our design strategy. Breathtaking proportions combined with a luxurious “haute couture” interior help to create the ultimate experience.”
Mercedes-Maybach 6 is designed to pack sophistication with the excellent performance of an electric engine. The underfloor battery of the cabriolet gives it a range of 500 km and 550 kW of output. The “four compact permanent magnet synchronous electric motors” power up the engine to go from 0 to 60 mph in four seconds, reaching top speeds of 155 mph.
As Tesla strives hard to reach the top of the electric vehicle market, Mercedes has its luxurious Maybach 6 to compete. It comes with a quick charging option where five minutes of charging will boost the car’s range for an extra 60 miles. Apart from the comfort and aesthetics of the car, the emission-free engine makes it a bright attraction for every car lover.
The intelligent system of the Mercedes-Maybach 6 learns and predicts the needs of the passengers and offers them real-time solutions. The Concierge function allows the passengers to communicate in real time instead of giving out pre-defined voice commands. The smart system is embedded with biometric sensors to monitor the mental and physical health status of the passengers onboard.
The six-meter length of the cabriolet is a very prominent feature with a “360° open-air luxury lounge, and as Mercedes puts it, the feel comes from the interior fixings and features.
“In the case of the Vision Mercedes-Maybach 6 Cabriolet, this traditional seat upholstery boasts a futuristic interpretation: each individual button of the quilting depicts a delicate Mercedes star, backlit in blue. The open-pore wood floor with inlaid aluminum underscores the lounge sensation and the connection to yachting.”
The Mercedes-Maybach was debuted at the Monterey Car Week that was held in California from August 15 to August 20.
